The Pendleton County Middle School Wildcat football staff has announced three weeks of summer practice to prepare for the upcoming season.
The camps are scheduled as follows: camp #1: 6 – 8 p.m. June 26 – 29 (Monday -Thursday), camp #2: 6 – 8 p.m. July 10 – 13 (Monday -Thursday) and camp #3: 6 – 8 p.m. July 24 – 27 (Monday – Thursday).
The camps are voluntary. The coaches encourage anyone who is not sure whether or not they may want to play tackle-football to come out to the free summer camps and practice with the team. All a student needs to bring are shorts, t-shirt, cleats or sneakers, and some water.
The Wildcats’ middle school football team is open to any sixth, seventh, or eighth grader who is interested in joining.
“Football is a great way for kids to stay active and learn important life skills like teamwork and sportsmanship,” said Lannie Redman, head coach. “We welcome anyone who wants to come out and give it a try.”
The Wildcats’ season is set to start on Aug. 7, and the team is still looking for more players to join them on the field. Coach Redman is excited about the upcoming season and is eager to get his team back on the field. “We are returning a great group of players, and I can’t wait to see what they can do this year,” Redman said.
If a student is interested in joining the Pendleton County Middle School Wildcat football team, contact Redman at 304-668-1305, Coach Jeff Rhodes at 818-398-2705 or Coach Chris Mason at 304-668-9473.
The team is dedicated to promoting teamwork, sportsmanship, and a love of the game. Led by Coach Redman, the Wildcats are committed to helping players develop their skills on the field and off.
